“Since 1969 only a few miles and some of California's best point breaks separated Al Merrick and The Campbell Brothers, Malcolm, and Duncan. Unbeknown to most, Al and Malcolm began working together in 1985 when Malcolm came on board and shaped for Al/CI for over 20 years. Now 30 years on, a design offering is born out of that experience and mutual respect.

The Shelter model is our contemporary Bonzer 5 shortboard. Its name was inspired by the 2001 film, Shelter by Chris Malloy and Moonshine Conspiracy. We provided a 6'2" and a 6'4" for the film. The boards were ridden by Taylor Knox, Donovan Frankenreiter, and a cast of visiting surfers. The shelter is primarily a squash tail and can be custom ordered with a swallow, round pin, or thumb tail. It is a versatile board that works well in all conditions. When deciding on the size, go with your favorite dimensions, taking into consideration the conditions and type of waves you anticipate using the board for.

Utilizing the Bonzer 5 system, which we have developed and over refined the last 34 years, the Shelter provides quick easy rail to rail transition, and unparalleled drive out of turns. It also maintains speed exceptionally well through cutbacks and has been known to have an uncanny ability to navigate through the barrel. We have been working for years toward getting the Bonzer fully into the mix at the highest levels; with CI that time has come. Have at it and enjoy the Bonzer Experience.” - Malcolm and Duncan Campbell

The goal of this dynamic collaboration is to bring the Bonzer, one of surfing's most unique and original designs, to the forefront and to continue CI's tradition of surfers building quality surfboards.

return period

Of course you have the right to return goods. Please note, however, that for logistical reasons you only have 14 days after receipt to send the goods back to us. You can do this without giving a reason and it is sufficient if the posting date is within the deadline. But we are really very accommodating and of course we will extend the deadline for you - please just let us know in advance.


In contrast to other online providers, we don't just throw away the returns, we sell them in our shop. We can therefore only take back goods that are neither used nor damaged. The risk and proof of return shipping lies with the customer

Return shipping costs will not be refunded. Repayments are made within 14 days.

Of course you are also welcome to come by directly and we will take the goods back personally.
